randi.lee = up now. 10 days left in February; 9 participants in the queue. We just might make it.

Also! The time has come to brainstorm prompts for March. Last March was post a character/post a scene for comparison's sake.

How about a "Last Day" post. Could be a last day on Earth (for the character, humanity, etc). The last day of Summer or the last day on the job.

I like that idea, but it seems more like a December 2012 prompt, though we would of course have to make sure everyone got their posts in by Dec. 21 :D

Maybe an "Ides of March" chain then? It is about "middles" after all, or simply something that happened in March, or maybe related to the Romans somehow.

I have an idea for March, which came to me during the January blog chain. The prompt for that month was "Winter Nightmare", which I blogged about while sitting in shorts because it is 85F here in the Southern Hemisphere. How about "Different Rules", where you discover that one thing has changed from how you're used to. A bit speculative, maybe?

I'm with something like this, I'm in Australia and I was experiencing 40 degree (celsius!) heat.

I also like the 'last day' idea... that seemed to spark some interest for me!

Rainy Days leads 3-2-2-1. I would have thought it was more of an April thing, but whatever. Do speak up as the prompt will have to be decided Friday at the latest.
